How to play SD/HD videos on iPad Air (in Mac)

“I have a large collection of SD/HD videos in my hard disc, they are all my wonderful memory, now I would like to play them on my new purchased ipad air, However when I put the videos into my iPad Air, most of them couldn’t be recognized, and these SD/HD videos unable to be played on my ipad air smoothly, Is there any solution about playing SD/HD videos on ipad air?”


More and more people have got the iPad Air tablet, with thinner and lighter body it is so easy to take when your travel, you can enjoy movies or use it to kill time when you on train, bus or plane. However the video formats supported by iPad Air are still limited, it only supports H.264/MPEG4 codec MP4, MOV and M4V format, the other formats like MKV, AVI, WMV, AVCHD, MTS, TiVo are all not supported. I recommend a iPad air video converter to you, Which could solve your problem.

Following is the detailed steps. (Here we take MKV for example, if you have other formats, the steps are the same.)

Free download iPad air video converter and install it

Step1. Launch the iPad air video converter, click “Add Video” or “Add from folder” to import your source materials in .mkv format. Besides MKV, you can also load FLV, AVI, WMV, VOB, TiVo, MPG, MOV, etc. files to the program. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.


Step2. Click “Format” bar, you can get the optimized videos for iPad Air under iPad > iPad Air HD Video(*.mp4). The output videos could fit on your device perfectly. 
To get 1080p video quality, just choose iPad>iPad Air Full HD Video(*.mp4).


If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish.  For watching videos on iPad Air, 720p with 1500~2500kbps is just all right. Notes:The bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Step3 Click the “Convert” button to start conversion
When conversion is finished, click "Open Folder" to located the converted files and drag to iTunes for transfer to the ipad air.

Now, you can enjoy videos on iPad Air anytime everywhere for great digital fun.
